Re: 1 Gbps is overkill In a business setting, those people should get business class Internet connections.
Even with two people, and at one time, three people in my house, we never even came close to maxing out the 50 Mbps downstream channel that we had. And that was with heavy downloading and use of NetFlix.

said by trparky:Not to be rude, but I call bullshit on this one. "Heavy downloading" alone will max out a 50mbps downstream easily. Whether using IRC bots, Usenet, BT, doesn't matter. It's extremely easy to max out 50mbps.

If you're just using Netflix, now that's a totally different story. But that's not what you said.
I can't even get most servers to fill the pipe unless I make multiple connections to the same server with segmented downloads. Luckily, I have DownThemAll as a Firefox extension that facilitates segmented downloads.

I find that difficult to believe since I can easily fill up my 100Mbps pipe.
